My daughter discovered something a year or so ago, and it's been a consuming passion for the past six months. I thought she would get tired of it and move onto something else (which is my children's wont) but she hasn't. In fact, she has continued to be more fascinated with it and keeps buying more stuff that has to do with it.

Her favorite store to shop is Barnes and Noble (she's a bookaholic as well) and they apparently keep much of this stuff in stock, because she comes home with something new every pay period.
